The city’s agreement with the teachers union has taken one more step towards approval, with top teachers union officials voting overwhelmingly in its favor for the $5.3 billion contract Monday.

Top teachers union officials overwhelmingly approved the city’s new $5.3 billion contract at a Monday night meeting of the United Federation of Teachers’ executive board — signaling the likely ratification of the contract by the union membership as a whole.

The contract will be voted on again at a Wednesday afternoon meeting of the union’s 3,400-member Delegate Assembly, with elected representatives from each of the city’s public schools.

The full membership of the union will vote to ratify the contract later in May or in early June.

Union officials said it’s likely the contract will be approved. The last time the teachers union membership rejected a proposed contract was in 1995.

Union officials distributed a memo on the new contract Tuesday night, revealing some previously undisclosed details, including a plan to buy unassigned teachers out of their jobs.
